When 2 dice are thrown, the probability of the sum being 9 is 1/9. When 2 cards are picked at random from a standard deck of cards, the probability of picking an ace and a queen is 8/663.

What is the probability of getting a sum of at least 9?

❖ “At least one” is equivalent to “one or more.” To find the probability of at least one of something, calculate the probability of none and then subtract that result from 1. That is, P(at least one) = 1 – P(none).
